I'm a new owner to PZ and its a lot of fun. Not very deep.

I think there are better rules and more shots to Dr.Dude.

Love them both for their great art package and fun theme.

I think you will win with either but I would start with Dude.

love mine i paid 900 for mine its not perfect. i would love to add party zone to it. I only played party zone on pinball arcade and party zone seems to have more to it but similar deepness. although the 2 ball mutliball on dude does take some work as i have it set to one lit on the gift of gab, hear of rock, and electric thing

I prefer Dr.Dude over PZ. I also think Dr. Dude looks better.

I like them both too, but if I had to choose it would be the Dude

If you love shooting left ramp all day then party zone. If you like some more shots to progress through a game pick Dr Dude.

I have a dude... As stated not very deep but can be fun and definitely a machine you need to get physical with to keep the ball in play. It's a bit of a sleeper pin because you can get it cheap and it grows on you... Like a fungus. I find myself singing the songs in my head during the day sometimes. Plus it's a nostalgia piece for me. Party zone has a DMD though and a little more going on I think. Tough choice but in the end it's Dr. Dude for me.

Op should start a poll.

I like both but would go with Dude

I'd probably go for Dude if both machines were in equal condition. That being said, I have a PZ that's in such minty condition I can never bring myself to actually sell/trade it even though it gets played the least in my collection. Put in coin taker cool white frosteds all around and left the original red incandescents and it looks awesome.

Always be excellent, never be rude. Get the gift of gab from dr. dude!
